"I have dealt with these frauds before and I think I know know the answer. The long story is I first began receiving constant annoying phone calls as many as ten a day at all hours and on weekends as well. The calls were coming from Mechanicsville, Virginia, and then from Lynnwood, Washington, from a "company?" called Receivables Performance Management or RPM. The State Attorney General of Virginia was good enough to write back and put me in touch with the Consumer Finacial Protection Bureau, a federal agency located in Iowa City, Iowa. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) called RPM and they said "Oh! We've made a mistake. That's not the person we were trying to find." and the calls stopped. Now they've started again with a new name, Receivablesperf. They moved from Virginia to Maryland but I also had calls from them from Lynnwood, Washington, and today from Salem, Oregon. Salem, Oregon, is where the state penitentiary is located. I believe these calls are the work of a gang operating from inside prison walls."
